The Honor ai-lef
irector has ashed ne too your lettern which you expressed yourtrut the Centra- Intelligence Agency's holdings or, Kr. Kurtano our previous answers to your inquiries.
Tr.is Agency queried the Berlin Documents Center2 after initial allegations of Kr. Waldheiir.'s Kazi involvement surfaced at the United Nations. Tnis search revealed three Germans named Kurt waldheim, with different dates and places of birth, vho were identified as members of various Kazi organizations. Based on available information, there was,ontinues to be, no evidence that any of thesehe former Secretary General of the Unitedr. Austrian.
The WAST file system in West Berlin vas not checked when
we prepared the response to0 inquiry. Normally, we
do not expand file searches to include foreign file holdings
such asn individuals of operational interest under
criminal investigation. In general, this Agency is not the
organization responsible for the worldwide investigation of
individuals who have been charged with criminal activities
during the Nazi era. i
Regarding your question concerningaldheim's indictment by Yugoslavia for murder, this Agencynformation on the matter.
We are not able to provide information or. your questions' about Kr. Waldheim's interrogation,. intelligence The operational records of the OSS have been turned over to the national Archives. You may wish to contact Kr. John Taylor, the OSS curatorho may be abl to provide you with the information you are seeking or,
me.y other suggestion would be to contact the Army's Center of Military History to determine whether the records of5 interrogation are still available.
As to the question of Mr. Waldheim and the Attorney General's Watchlist, we checked with'the Office of Special Investigations at the Department of Justice to determine whether the CIA was involved in adding Kr. Waldneim to this list. After discussions with the director of that office, we have found nothing to suggest Agency involvement with the waldheim case.
I am very sorry if our answers on Kr* Waldheim have -caused confusionope that these additional answers can. address your concerns.
